[applause] we take america to two very different places and that is clear by virtue of what you have heard over the last two debates and you will hear over the last one as well. the president will put an america in place that has about $20 trillion in debt, killing the american dream for your kids. if i become president, i will take the action to

you for coming. i want to thank those who are joining us on c-span. on behalf of the national press club we're honored to have with us the senior senator from new york charles schumer. the senator will address the topic of tax reform. i just want to say i think this is an appropriate topic following a columbus day weekend. in club bus' time the prevailing weekend that there were dragons right over the horizon and most people thought the world was flat and anyone setting nauf a journey would go off the cliff. columbus thought he could find a new route. and today we're going to be exploring new tax reform and how to avoid a fiscal cliff. the senator will speak for about 20 to 25 minutes and then we will open up to questions. senator? >> ok. thank you, jamie for that very timely introduction. i want to thank the national press club. here's what i said yesterday at the new york city columbus day parade to the many bystanders.

. this debate comes to us from dallas, courtesy of wfaa tv. ted cruz is the former salaam -- solicitor general and paul sadler is a former member of the texas house. live coverage on c-span. >> to protect you in washington -- >> billions -- millions of americans are standing up, saying, we want our country back. >> ted cruz -- >> i would like to turn around the out of control spending. >> self-anointed a true texas conservative. >> or paul sadler, the underdog east texas attorney. >> do not you anoint him yet. >> a democrat rich in experience to forge bipartisan reform, but short on cash and name recognition. >> i will be right here in texas where i belong. >> the man behind the message. >> can we take the u.s. senate? >> is cruz vs sadler -- the belo debate. >> good evening everyone. thank you for joining us for the belo debate, ted cruz vs paul sadler. we are living from wfaa's studios in dallas. we want to welcome the words across the state. the two u.s. senate candidates, republican ted cruz and democrat paul sadler, are debating for the first time before the november election. it is a rac
any fresh ideas, use scare tactics to scare voters. if you do not have a good record, paint your opponent as someone people should run from. >> what we said then and what i have always agreed, let younger americans have a voluntary choice of making their money work faster for them. what we are saying is no changes for anybody 55 and above. the kind of changes we're talking about for younger people, do not increase the benefits for wealthy people. >> quickly, vice president. >> all the studies show if we went with social security proposal made by mitt romney, if you are in your 40's now, you will pay $2,600 less in social security. the idea of changing, to cut the benefits for people without taking other action to make it work, it is absolutely the wrong way. these guys have not been big on medicare from the beginning. their party has not been big on medicare from the beginning. they have always been about social security as little as you can do. who do you trust on this? a man who introduced a bill that would raise it $6,400 a year, knowing it and passing it? or me and the presid
either party has been serious about immigration. both parties have demagogued on it, but they have used it to rally their base rather than rolling up their sleeves in -- a andn -- and solving the problem. we need to remain a nation that does not as welcome, but celebrates our immigrants. over 50 years ago, my father came as an immigrant when he was 18, not speaking english, working as a dishwasher. >> i want to know, again, what would you do it for the illegal immigrants already here? mitt romney says self-deport during the primary. do you agree with that? do you agree with mass deportations? >> i think the first thing we need to do is secure the borders, fix the problem. hold on a minute. but i said it is a staged approach. this second step related to that is put in place a strong verifying system so employers will face sanctions for hiring people illegally. and have a safe harbor if they comply with the system. if we drive up the job market, -- dry up the job market, if we secure the borders, that is how we solve that problem. >> you tell so many lies, it is unbelievable. you have ac
, while not what it used to be, certainly a hard-core exile community that believes in the embargo and his hardcore with issues relating to cuba, but there are second- and third- and fourth-generation cuban-americans that have more distance from castro and the regime and are more likely to vote democrat and more likely to not favor the continuation of the embargo. host: roy, go ahead. caller: i live about five miles away from lynn university, and i felt a strong empathic connection to my candidate mitt romney that night had i been moderating, i would have grilled mitt romney a little bit more on his domestic policy. on the home front, i am just wondering if mr. romney and his wife are ever going to consider taking another position, or are they going to keep bumping their private sectors in missionary, grinding their knees? host: we will move on. just for those who may have missed this, for election night 2012, what will you be watching for? guest: i am going to be watching the democratic margin in broward, dade, and palm beach counties. it is critical for the president that he has very lar
us a call. we still have that line set up for nevada residents. will go right now to joe in richmond, indiana, on the republican line. caller: thank you very much. i'd appreciate you taking our calls -- i appreciate you taking our calls. nevada definitely has a need as far as support and things like this. i truly feel president obama has had four years which we hear a lot of rhetoric but the truth is in the fruits of the person. we need to desperately turn our country to where our economy can be brought back. i feel governor romney would fill that for us. we need to take a stand for what is right. we need to take a look at what they have done. the background parts of the world with a reach out and do things that are right. i just encourage all the voters in nevada to truly look at what their needs are and what promises have been given. host: will go to one of those voters in nevada on the democratic line. caller: how are you today? basically what i wanted to know is when the democrats took the presidential race, they inherited a tremendous mess. do you really think that the republica
actually, it is a bit more than that. but we do not need is a tax increase that will cost us 700,000 jobs. two years ago, the president said you do not want to raise taxes in a bad economy. the economy was better than that it is now. ladies and gentleman, this is a big choice. it is not only about taxes. it is about freedom. it is about our principles. it is about our country. it is about the idea of our country. america is so much more than a country with a flag. it is an idea. these ideas make us who we are. they make us special. i will see something that in washington is considered out of date or wrong, and it is this -- america is an exceptional nation. we are not afraid to say so. [cheers and applause] >> usa! usa! usa! >> we have a chance to get ourselves on the right track. we have a chance to vote for someone who will protect our freedoms. he will lead to protect our religious freedom. he will protect our second amendment rights. ladies and gentlemen, right here in virginia, we have a big choice to make. america has a big choice to make. america will make the right choice
the world with insights that god gave us our rights and not the government. [cheers and applause] these are rights which we have. i love america. my confidence in the future comes from my passion for this country and for the people of this country. do you realize how unusual we are as a people? i do not know how it began, but it is here. it is in our hearts. some years ago when i was serving as governor of my state, the then president of israel came to boston. i happen to have a lunch with him in someone's apartment. someone said to him, "what you think about america's involvement in iraq?" he said, "before i answer that, i need to put this into context." america is the greatest nation in the history of earth. i say this because of this -- in the history of the earth, whenever there has been war and conflict, the nation that wins takes land away from the nation that loses because land has always been the source of value on the planet." he said, "one nation in history, one nation, has laid on the lives of hundreds and thousands of its sons and daughters and has taken no land. amer
never allow that. [laughter] >> i think that captures it great. to say that many of us do hope to see more when we watch these debates. more of the candidates. more of the journalists. but we expect far less. we know from experience now what happens. and we know that, by and large, it neither candidate does anything outrageous, the attention goes to those small things we have got to talk about for the next 24 hours for the remainder of the election. >> are we entering an era in which the rhetorical measurement is if you lose as opposed to if you win. would you say that is the circumstance to which candidates -- winning is nice, but not losing is the thing. >> that could be what they are looking at. the risk factor is so high, but not losing is sometimes more important. this year for obama in particular. >> the fact that the headline seems to be -- the gaff ise of the headline. >> -- the gaffe is the headline. >> i am wondering what would be the most important thing for me to look at when i am watching the debate. what would be the number 1. the debate is open. what should i be looking
. i have decided for our final debate, i have to go back to the strategy i used to compare -- prepare for the first debate. i am kidding. i want to make you sweat. [laughter] in all seriousness, i could not be more honored to be here this evening. i am honored to be with leaders in both the private and public sectors, particularly the extraordinary work done by the catholic church. [applause] it is written in scripture that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance character, and character, hope. this country has fought through very tough years together. we have come as far as we have mainly because the perseverance and character of ordinary americans. it says something about who we are as people that at the middle of an election season, opposing candidates can share the same stage. people from all parties come together to support a worthy cause. i want to thank governor romney for joining me because i admire him very much as a family man and a loving father and those are two titles that will always matter more than any political ones. [applause] we may have different politi
are the resources that can be brought to bear that traditionally are not used in these kinds of disaster situations. for example, there may be military assets that help was moved equipment -- us move equipment to make sure the flooding and pumping out the water in new york city can move more quickly. there may be resources to bear to help. private utilities get their equipment and personnel in place so we can get power up and running as soon as possible. so my message to the governors and mayors and through them to the communities that have been hit so hard is that we are going to do everything we can to get resources to you and make sure any unmet need is identified. we are responding to it as quickly as possible. i told the mayors and governors if they're getting no for an answer somewhere in the federal government, they can call me personally at the white house. obviously the state and local federal response is important, but what we do as a community, what we do as neighbors and fellow citizens is equally important. a couple of things i want the public to know they can do. first of all, because
you for your service and use you as a conduit for so many men and women who have added to what otherwise would not be there in the way of security and protection. with that, we stand adjourned.

, the entirety of it, not just e- verify, that's his policy, and it won't help us grow. when we think about immigration, we have to understand there are folks all around the world who still see america as the land of promise and they provide us energy and they provide us innovation, and they start companies like intel and google and we want to encourage that. now, we've got to make sure we do it in a smart way, a comprehensive way, and we make the legal system better. but when we make this into a divisive political issue and when we don't have bipartisan support -- i can deliver, governor, a whole bunch of democrats to get comprehensive immigration reform done and we can't -- we have not seen republicans serious about this issue at all and it's time for them to get serious on it. >> don't go away, because i want you to talk to carey lotka who wants to switch the topic for us. >> i'm here. ok, hi, carey. >> good evening, mr. president. >> what's your name? >> carey. >> great to see you. >> this question comes from a brain trust of my friends at global telecom supply in minneola yesterday. we

as much as they used to be. wen your father was there, they the whole week there. back then you had walter cronkite. today you have people on fox news and msnbc's who are not so much reporters but participants. and i think it's also in part because in the old days you didn't switch from majority to minority that frequently. before winning the majoritied that opportunity to begin to implement the majority. and so there's a lack of willingness to cooperate because it might help them win the majority. we're going to spend over $9 million and we had spent three times more in part because of citizen's united and you have all those -- inside? and i mean, you're seeing the differences from when you first came until now? the ability? could you work with tom daschle today? >> sure. can i just say i want to thank governor shars negative for inviting me and my 100-year-old mother and wife both attended the institution, and one was a delta gamma and one was a theta. >> why we may come out of this is because of -- yes, i'm trying to meet someone in that 11%. i'd like to ask him or her what they approve
sense." if we take a balanced approach, that allows us to help young people make sure they can afford to go to college. the teacher i met in las vegas, who describes to me how she has 42 kids and her class, the first two weeks, she has some of them sitting on the floor until they got reassigned. they're using textbooks that are 10 years old. that is not a recipe for growth. that is not how america was built, but it reflects choices. we will have to make decisions. if we are asking for no revenue, that means we have to get rid of a bunch of stuff, and the magnitude of the tax cuts you're talking about would end up and severe hardship for people. it will not help us grow. when you talk about shifting medicaid to states, we are talking about a potential 30% cut. that may not seem like a big deal when it is numbers on a sheet of paper. if we are talking about a family with an autistic kid that depends on that medicaid, that is a big problem. governors are creative. they are not created enough to make up for 30% of revenue on something like medicaid. some people end up not getting help. >>
carolina courtesy of wra -tv in raleigh. >> good evening and thank you for joining us for this third and final televised debate for governor. one of these two people will be the next governor. we will be asking the questions tonight. the candidates are here and they will let us know specifically what their vision is to move north carolina forward for the next four years. we welcome all of you and thank you for joining us. this live debate is being televised across north carolina. we appreciate you being with us tonight and we are confident it will be in light of information for those who either have already voted for plan to vote on november 6. before we get started, let's meet the nominees. one of them will be our next governor. walter delton is finishing his first term as north carolina lieutenant governor. his career began in 1996 as a state senator and served six terms representing rutherford and cleveland counties. pat mccoury became the 53rd mayor of charlotte and served seven terms as the queen city leader. he began his political career in 1989 as a city councilman. >> a few m
institutions. are using a sign a slowdown? >> not quite like that. europe is in a mild recession. the government is going to spend 50% of the money. that will not go down. asia is a slower but it is nothing mystical or different than your read about. united states is fundamentally a stronger than people think, in my opinion. in latin america, some are better and some are slower. >> asia use same syncline about. -- you seem sanguine. >> this in my opinion, but i. they will meet their objective of 7%-8% higher. they are doing this to avoid social unrest and change the infrastructure. it change will be coming and it will be smoothed and continue to form the policies of the government. they have $3 trillion in reserve and a lot of capabilities to maintain growth. they did that that month, literally. they knew what they want to accomplish. i do not think i can do that 10 years from now. they're not building a lot of bridges to nowhere. i think it will work in the immediate term. >> there's a lot of talk about africa. in latin america, we have seen signs of pretty robust growth. >> we'

[applause] we are here in partnership on behalf of an idea. no matter who your parents are, no matter where you come from, you should have the idea in america -- the opportunity to rise cannot escape poverty, and achieve whatever your god-given talent and hard work enable you to achieve. in so many ways, our nation's history has been a struggle to bring opportunity into life. our nation was founded on the creed that all men are created equal, that we all possess equal rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. of course, the quality and opportunity has not always been a fact of life in our country. it is something we have had to constantly fight for. it is a cause that continues to this day. even though some many barriers to equality have fallen, too many old inequities persist. too many children, especially african-american and hispanic children, are sent into mediocre
